It’s almost March and the coldest months are behind us here in Edmonton. Soon enough you’ll be donning a flowing spring dress instead of a parka, and strolling the streets with comfort and ease.
We may be welcoming the warm and humid temperatures that come with the change in season, but our hair needs to get ready to brave the climate change and humidity as we transition into Spring.
The best way to prepare begins with your hair care regime, watching what you eat, and wear.
1. Evaluate Your Current Hair Condition
The first thing you should be concerned about is the overall health of your hair and scalp.
During the winter, our hair is subjected to weather that leaves our hair brittle and dry.
You should take the time to ensure that you properly moisturize your strands, and if they’re dry, be sure to add some moisturizing products to your hair ritual before you’re subjected to the heat of spring.
2. Do Some Spring Cleaning And Get A Haircut
It’s always a good idea to start your season off fresh with a haircut. Even if you don’t want to drastically change the length of your hair, cutting less than an inch can do wonders for the health of your hair and save it from any further damage that split ends may cause in the long run.
3. Boost The Scalp
Combatting dryness is the most common issue for our hair and scalp in Winter, and there’s no denying a healthy and hydrated scalp is the foundation for optimal hair growth.
The best way to give your scalp a boost when it’s dry is by using a clarifying shampoo for a deep clean. We recommend Kerastase’s Bain Chronologiste Revitalizing Shampoo, or Kevin Murphy’s Maxi Wash to give you a fortifying clean.
4. Be Ready For Rain and Humidity
You know what they say about April showers. It brings terrible hair days. Rain and moisture in the air can flatten out your hair and leave you with a frizzy mess for the rest of your day. Since umbrellas and raincoats don’t always work, make sure to fight back with an anti-humidity product. Kerastase has a vast array of products dedicated to nourishing your hair while keeping frizz away.
For curly hair, we recommend Creme Oleo Curl, and for a natural and healthy glow, check out Essence D’eclat for protection against heat and frizz.
5. Eating The Right Diet For Your Hair
Complimenting your hair care routine with an excellent diet filled with the right nutrients is a great way to ensure you’ve got luscious locks all year round! Go for foods like walnuts, dark chocolate, lentils, sweet potatoes, and foods rich in Omega 3’s like salmon.
Getting the right nutrients in your body, such as Vitamin A, protein, biotin, and vitamin E can help keep your hair nourished and healthy while you’re basking in sun rays!
Spring is just around the corner. Make sure your hair is ready for another season with these tips!
